Hillary Clinton to testify on ’emotional trauma’ of being ’empowered’ in a Clinton Foundation investigation

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi about her role in the Clinton Foundation and how it contributed to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, a committee aide confirmed on Tuesday.

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, will address the panel’s probe into the attack in Benghazi on March 5, the aide said.

It was unclear if Clinton will attend the hearing.

The hearing will focus on the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith and three other Americans.

A spokesman for the House committee said it is looking forward to Clinton’s testimony, which the panel is conducting without the full cooperation of the State Department.

During her 2016 presidential bid, Clinton has made some public statements in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack, and she has defended her decision to use a private email account to conduct official business.

She has said she was using a personal email account for personal reasons and did not use the account for official business, and has defended it as a way to avoid the need for an email server and other security measures that would have allowed her to be searched when traveling.
